dodging another bullet, I hope
That sore calf I mentioned started feeling better on Saturday, so yesterday I treated it to a 21-miler with the last 10 at someone else's marathon pace. That turned out not to be such a great idea, but I still got about 7 of those 10 miles, albeit with half-mile rests in between. I spent the rest of the day being extra-solicitous of the now extremely-sore calf - icing it, massaging it, heating it, stretching it, chanting spells, whining to my coach - and this morning it was a lot better. Still, my coach advised me to stay off the road for the day and get on the elliptical, so I did. This morning's 6 miles was fun, but by afternoon the novelty had worn off. I'll be glad to get back to normal running tomorrow.
What's on tap this week:
A new episode of The Shield (Forest Whitaker, cool!) Tuesday night
5 miles of tempo embedded in Wednesday morning's run
Maybe a run with Real Live Company! Thursday night
An appointment with the massage therapist Friday noon
10K race Saturday morning, in which a twentysomething co-worker guy and I have agreed to try and pace each other at 6:30s, ha!
Some overnight work Saturday, but at least I didn't have to work this past weekend and I don't have to work weekend after next, and I said I wasn't going to whine about it anyway, so I'm not.
